AgileDS™ Foundation & Practitioner virtual

ILX’s AgileDS Foundation & Practitioner virtual course allows you to experience the benefits of world-class teaching without having to leave your house!

About the course

This four day intensive virtual course provides everything you need to fully prepare you for the AgileDS Foundation and Practitioner examinations. Agile Digital Services (AgileDS) provides a consistent approach, common language and a skilled workforce for the successful design, delivery and evolution of digital service. The AgileDS guidance is aligned to the Service Manual of Government Digital Service, the UK Government’s department responsible for digital transformation.

By the end of the Foundation-level qualification you should have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Agile Digital Services guidance to be able to recognise and distinguish between the key elements of the approach. The Practitioner-level qualification confirms that that you not only have sufficient knowledge and understanding of Agile Digital Services guidance, but that you have the ability to apply and tailor it to a given scenario situation.
